Maxime Rovere: Le clan Spinoza. Amsterdam, 1677. L’invention de la liberté

1677. Un groupe d’intellectuels publie à Amsterdam un livre intitulé Œuvres posthumes avec pour nom d’auteur : B.d.S.

Qui se cache derrière ces initiales? Bento de Spinoza, certes… mais pas seulement.

Son livre est le produit d’échanges palpitants entre les savants de toute l’Europe, de querelles entre les communautés juives et chrétiennes mal unies, d’amitiés éternelles et même d’amours déçues.

Cette fantaisie historique et philosophique, entièrement fondée sur les faits et les textes, transforme la biographie du philosophe Spinoza en un fascinant portrait d’hommes et de femmes épris de liberté, lancés dans l’aventure de la raison moderne.

Synthèse de décennies de recherches collectives, le roman de Maxime Rovere éclaire la naissance et les enjeux d’une philosophie qui n’en finit pas de nous aider à comprendre le monde, et nous avec lui.

Reel Verse. Poems About the Movies. Edited by Michael Waters and Harold Schechter

Reel Verse is a unique Pocket Poets anthology of a hundred years of poetic tributes to the silver screen, from the silent film era to the present.

The variety of subjects is dazzling, from movie stars to bit players, from B-movies to Bollywood, from Clark Gable to Jean Cocteau.

More than a hundred poets riff on their movie memories: Langston Hughes and John Updike on the theaters of their youth, Jack Kerouac and Robert Lowell on Harpo Marx, Sharon Olds on Marilyn Monroe, Louise Erdrich on John Wayne, May Swenson on the James Bond films, Terrance Hayes on early Black cinema, Maxine Kumin on Casablanca, and Richard Wilbur on The Prisoner of Zenda. Orson Welles, Leni Riefenstahl, and Ingmar Bergman share the spotlight with Shirley Temple, King Kong, and Carmen Miranda; Bonnie and Clyde and Ridley Scott with Roshomon, Hitchcock, and Bresson.

In Reel Verse, one of our oldest art forms pays loving homage to one of our newest—the thrilling art of cinema.

Clemens J. Setz: Der Trost runder Dinge (Erzählungen)

Ein elsässischer Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg entdeckt am Nachthimmel das Sternbild des Großen Burschen, das so schauderhaft ist, dass er niemandem davon erzählen kann.

Ein junger Mann, der sich in die blinde Anja verliebt hat, muss feststellen, dass ihr Apartment von oben bis unten mit Beschimpfungen bekritzelt ist. Marcel, sechzehn Jahre alt, hinterlässt auf der Toilettenwand eines Erotiklokals seine Handynummer und den Namen Suzy.

Familie Scheuch bekommt eines Tages Besuch von einem Herrn Ulrichsdorfer, der vorgibt, in ihrem Haus aufgewachsen zu sein, und einen Elektroschocker unter seinem geliehenen Anzugjackett verbirgt.

Das ganz und gar Unerwartete bricht in das Leben von Clemens J. Setz’ Figuren ein. Ihr Schöpfer erzählt davon einfühlsam, fast zärtlich. Durch Falltüren gestattet er uns Blicke auf rätselhafte Erscheinungen und in geheimnisvolle Abgründe des Alltags, man stößt auf Wiedergänger und auf Sätze, die einen mit der Zunge schnalzen lassen.

Der Trost runder Dinge ist ein Buch voller Irrlichter und doppelter Böden – radikal erzählt und aufregend bis ins Detail.

Clemens J. Setz wurde 1982 in Graz geboren, wo er Mathematik sowie Germanistik studierte und heute als Übersetzer und freier Schriftsteller lebt. 2011 wurde er für seinen Erzählband Die Liebe zur Zeit des Mahlstädter Kindes mit dem Preis der Leipziger Buchmesse ausgezeichnet. Sein Roman Indigo stand auf der Shortlist des Deutschen Buchpreises 2012 und wurde mit dem Literaturpreis des Kulturkreises der deutschen Wirtschaft 2013 ausgezeichnet. 2014 erschien sein erster Gedichtband Die Vogelstraußtrompete. Für seinen Roman Die Stunde zwischen Frau und Gitarre erhielt Setz den Wilhelm Raabe-Literaturpreis 2015.

Better to consider
the small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world:
a snowflake flitting through the air,
swathes of blue and orange entangling the sky in their warm shawl,
glances to be tucked away like stones run smooth by rivers,
the shadows of our hands like wings, playing with the light.

Antoine de Latour : Notre-Dame de Paris (Poème)

La cathédrale Notre-Dame ravagée par les flammes

Le feu a pris dans les combles du monument le plus visité d’Europe un peu avant 19 heures.

Le Monde, 15 Avril 2019 à 19h50

 

 

Notre-Dame de Paris

Ce poème vivant, seconde Notre-Dame,
Qui doit se voir encore debout à l’horizon,
Quand l’autre qui l’inspire et dont il prend le nom,
Aura dans la poussière exhalé sa grande âme ;

Ce colosse qu’un soir de son rêve de flamme
L’artiste a vu sortir, fait d’or et de limon,
Ce chant aux mille échos, où l’ange et le démon
Mêlent le cri du tigre au soupir de la femme ;

Ce livre de l’enfer et du ciel, le voici :
Lisez, mais si vers vous un pauvre enfant transi
Tend la main pour sa sœur qui danse sur la place,

Donnez, ne comptez pas, c’est Dieu qui comptera ;
Donnez, que votre cœur, en voyant l’humble tasse,
Se rappelle toujours la brune Esméralda.

Antoine de Latour
(1808-1881)
Poème: Notre-Dame de Paris (1835)

Arcana. A Stephen Jonas Reader

Arcana: A Stephen Jonas Reader is the first selection of his work to appear in 25 years.

With a biographical introduction and a postscript delving into recent discoveries concerning the poet’s birthplace and background, Arcana is a crucial corrective to our understanding of post-war American poetry, restoring Jonas to his rightful place among the period’s vanguard.

Featuring previously uncollected and unpublished work, a section of never-before-seen facsimiles from notebooks, and a generous selection from his innovative serial poem Exercises for Ear (1968), Arcana is a much-needed retrieval of an overlooked American poet, as well as a valuable contribution to African American and Queer literature.

Beginning in the 1950s until his untimely death at age 49, Stephen Jonas (1921-1970) was an influential if underground figure of the New American Poetry. A gay, African-American poet of self-obscured origins, heavily influenced by Ezra Pound and Charles Olson, the Boston-based Jonas was a pioneer of the serial poem and an erudite mentor to such acknowledged masters as Jack Spicer and John Wieners, even as he lived a shadowy existence among drug addicts, thieves, and hustlers.

Major publications include Love, the Poem, the Sea & Other Pieces Examined by Me (1957), Exerces for Ear (1968), and Selected Poems (1994).

Pol Kurucz: The Normals

Pol Kurucz: The Normals

The Normals is a heteroclit family of excentric women going abot their lives, free, challenging aesthetic, gender and social norms.

Pol Kurucz was born with two different names to a French mother in a Hungarian hospital. His childhood hyperactivity was treated with theater, and theater was later treated with finance. By 27 he was a manager by day and a stage director by night. He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream money making bar loss making in its indie art basement. Then he suddenly died of absurdity. Pol was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense.

Today he works on eccentric fashion, celebrity and fine art projects in São Paulo and New York. His photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including: Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, Marie Claire, The Guardian, Dazed, Adobe Create, Hunger, Sleek, Nylon, Hi-Fructose, Galore. Pol’s works were exhibited worldwide in 72 galleries and cultural events in 2018 including: Juxtapoz Club House (Art Basel Miami), ArtExpo NYC, Red Dot Miami, Lincoln Center NYC, Shanghai Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Superchief Gallery Miami, Lumas Galleries worldwide, Democrart Galleries in Brazil and Pica Photo shows in China.

Hera Lindsay Bird: Pamper Me to Hell & Back (Poetry)

Love, death, Bruce Willis, public urination, being a woman, love, The Nanny, love.

This pamphlet of poetry by Hera Lindsay Bird is a startling departure from her bestselling debut Hera Lindsay Bird by defying convention and remaining exactly the same, only worse. This collection, which focuses on love, childish behaviours, 90’s celebrity references and being a woman, is sure to confirm all your worst suspicions and prejudices.

Selected in 2018 by Carol Ann Duffy as part of the Laureate’s Choice Collection.  Carol Ann Duffy: “Without doubt the most arresting and original new young poet – on page and in performance – to arrive.” 

Hera Lindsay Bird was born in Thames, NZ, in 1987 and lives in Wellington. Her debut book of verse, blithely titled Hera Lindsay Bird, was published in 2016 to immediate and vast acclaim, and won best first book of poetry at the 2017 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.

Bas Kwakman: In poëzie en oorlog. Vijftig jaar Poetry International

In In poëzie en oorlog onthult directeur Bas Kwakman van Poetry International op verrassende en soms ontluisterende wijze de wereld van de poëzie.

Daarbij ontziet de schrijver niets en niemand, ook zichzelf niet. In poëzie en oorlog is alles geoorloofd.

Leidraad is de geschiedenis van het Poetry International Festival in Rotterdam, dat in 1970 in anarchie werd geboren en inmiddels wereldwijd een van de belangrijkste ontmoetingsplaatsen voor dichters en poëzieliefhebbers is geworden.

Gedreven door de liefde voor poëzie en een gezonde argwaan jegens het menselijke bedrijf daarachter beschrijft Kwakman met warmte, humor, kennis en verbazing zijn unieke ervaringen in de bijzondere wereld tussen de versregels.

One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem by Neil Tennant (Pet Shop Boys)

Over a career that spans four decades and thirteen studio albums with Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant has consistently proved himself to be one of the most elegant and stylish of contemporary lyricists.

Arranged alphabetically, One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem presents an overview of his considerable achievement as a chronicler of modern life: the romance, the break-ups, the aspirations, the changing attitudes, the history, the politics, the pain.

The landscape of Tennant’s lyrics is recognisably British in character – restrained and preoccupied with the mundane, occasionally satirical, yet also yearning for escape and theatrical release.

Often surprisingly revealing, this volume is contextualised by a personal commentary on each lyric and an introduction by the author which gives a fascinating insight into the process and genesis of writing.

Flamboyant, understated, celebratory and elegiac, Neil Tennant’s lyrics are a document of our times.

Everywhere I’m going to

PARK: VAN HIERUIT – tentoonstelling

In Van Hieruit toont PARK het werk van negen in Tilburg woonachtige en werkzame kunstenaars. Met deze expositie wil PARK recht doen aan de gedachte Tilburg, stad van makers.

Al vele decennia is de stad rijk gevuld met generaties kunstenaars werkend in verschillende disciplines en expressievormen. In Van Hieruit wordt deze veelzijdigheid omarmd.

PARK handelt vanuit een typisch-Tilburgse makers mentaliteit. Ondanks bezuinigingen lijkt de stad zich hard te blijven maken voor de kunsten. En dat is belangrijk, want kunst heeft het zwaar te verduren. Ze moet functioneel toepasbaar zijn, betrokken zijn met de maatschappij – maar hier niet te aanstootgevend in zijn -, ze moet verbinden, economisch rendabel zijn en ook nog eens aantrekkelijk.

PARK biedt graag ruimte en tijd voor experiment. In deze tentoonstelling concentreert PARK zich op uiteenlopende perspectieven en diverse beroepspraktijken, om te openen in plaats van te vernauwen. Van Hieruit is een groepstentoonstelling gewijd aan nog niet eerder bij PARK getoond Tilburgs talent. De tentoonstelling laat als context een grote diversiteit in werk, leeftijd en media zien en beoogt het gesprek aan te gaan over de waarde van uiteenlopende zienswijzen, mentaliteiten en werkpraktijken. Van hieruit de wereld in.
